Origami Flowers

  • Exhibition: It's all in the detail - 2023
  • Description of your entry: The oval disc was textured with fine mesh through a rolling mill before I added the cloisonné flower patterns inspired by Japanese origami papers. I used transparent flux, green, red and opalescent white. The oval was then set with a rock crystal cabochon which magnifies the flowers. I made 3 more flowers for the setting which I set with small cabochons the same colours as the enamels.
